GBS: Clerk’s Office Summaries Can Be Misleading

The letter from the members of the University of California Academic Council has hit the court’s docket. The clerk’s summary of the letter is certainly a model of concision:

LETTER addressed to J. Michael McMahon from Mary Croughan, Henry Powell et al, dated 8/13/09 re: Not opposed to the settlement. (cd)

If I had to pick a phrase to describe the letter, “Not opposed to the settlement” wouldn’t be the one I’d choose.
